The Government are delighted to host their next Closer to Home event on Thursday 8
December 2022, 3-6pm at the Salvation Army in Minden Place. This event will focus on the
cost of living and winter pressures.
Islanders are invited to come along and speak to a range of service providers and receive
guidance on managing financial pressures during this challenging time. There will be over
20 services available, all in one place, with the aim of making sure that Islanders can access
the support they need.
The services attending range from Citizens Advice Jersey, Housing Gateway &
Safeguarding to Jersey Electricity. Islanders can also find out more about the Government’s
Community Costs Bonus and, if eligible, apply at the event.
Minister for Social Security, Deputy Elaine Millar said. “It is important that we continue to
provide the Closer to Home service and give Islanders the ease of accessing the services
they may benefit from all-in-one place. The cost of living is affecting so many, and this
event will support those Islanders that need support the most, by enabling them to speak
to key organisations that can help.
“I would encourage people to attend and make the most of the advice available, to make
sure they are accessing any support they need and are aware of services and benefits they
could be entitled to.”
